From March 15-17, 2023, the “First National Conference on Infectious Disease Modeling” of the BMBF-funded Modeling Network for Serious Infectious Diseases (MONID) took place in Berlin. More than 100 national and international scientists used the conference for networking, exchange and discussions. RESPINOW participated as one of the research consortia, also using an internal session to discuss and work on current milestones and challenges of the four subprojects.

On 02. and 03 November 2022, the kick-off meeting of RESPINOW took place as a hybrid event at the HZI in Braunschweig. Project participants from all 10 institutions met offline and online to discuss planned projects and concrete implementation within the subprojects as well as the common interfaces and nodes of the subprojects. Many thanks to all participants for the successful and exciting meeting.

The second interim analysis in the IMMUNEBRIDGE project represents a data pooling of data from several studies that conducted surveys of immunity, vaccination coverage, and occurred reported infections with SARS-CoV-2 in Germany from June to early September in the summer of 2022. The results are intended to inform modeling consortia to enable the appropriate groups to use current population data for parameterization. The data were presented to the BMBF in October and published here: https://zenodo.org/record/7177592#.Y00D4HZBxaR
As part of a BMBF-funded adhoc project of the Network for University Medicine (NUM) (IMMUNEBRIDGE), the new survey conducted in the fast population panel MuSPAD for RESPINOW has been extended in June and July 2022. In total, more than 9000 people participated again in a survey and more than 3000 came again for a blood draw at one of the study centers. The corresponding data on protection from infection and protection from a severe course of SARS-CoV-2 transmission, together with other cohorts, were made available to the BMBF modeling consortia in August in a dataset: https://zenodo.org/record/6968574#.YygfsXZBwuU
